Strong Customer Authentication in 2021
Four months after the implementation of PSD2 in the field of payments, it is possible to photograph the impact that two-factor authentication, otherwise known as Strong Customer Authentication, has made to feel on online sales. The document includes the analysis of data processed by Mastercard relating to authentication at European level, with a focus on Italy, and an examination by Axerve on the transactions of its merchants. From the whitepaper, Italy is among those with the lowest performances, a sign that all the players involved in the new legislation can still do a lot to optimize the conversion rate. Precisely with this in mind, Axerve has developed a PSD2 compliant solution that aims to optimize the conversion, restating the new safety standards introduced by European legislation.
